[R] generic default values

I have a generic function

test.equal <- function(obj1, obj2, ...) UseMethod("test.equal")

however, the only argument that specific methods use is "fuzz" so I
would like to change this to

test.equal <- function(obj1, obj2, fuzz=???) UseMethod("test.equal")

The problem is that some methods use slightly different default values
for fuzz than others. How should the generic be specified to allow this?
